Butterfly Wonderland

The weather has been so beautiful in Phoenix that it gave me the itch to get out with my camera.  Sometimes, however, I'm bored with my immediate surroundings and I didn't really want a road trip.  So yesterday I visited 'America's Largest Butterfly Atrium.'

I filled a 16gb card in less than 2 hours.  I saw grown men giggling as butterflies landed on them.  I felt butterflies alighting on my head (couldn't get a photo of that).  It was a lovely afternoon and I hope you enjoy the MANY photos.
